  • “We have become human doings, not beings”
    low and soft but carries in the spartan room He compares the body the complete body which includes the mind with supercomputers and suggests we are binary beings A thought creates a molecule like turning base metal into gold It s alchemy It s structured It s math Bali says At conception there is no body Just information In a dark little chamber develops a computer that has the ability

  • Yoga at home: Relaxing space, relaxed mind
    s dark and put on soft music says Méthot who began yoga when she returned from Tokyo in 2008 Now I have a different body with yoga I feel taller And now I m addicted Each morning the living room of Kelly McGrath s small N D G apartment undergoes a transformation The coffee table is moved aside the couches are pushed back and a rattan screen becomes the backdrop for the low table in front of which she lays her yoga mat With her three dogs relaxing nearby inhaling the tender scent of Tibetan incense she completes her hour long ritual I like to make up a small table which I call an altar so I can meditate says McGrath who has been teaching yoga for 11 years full time and practising for more than 20 On it for inspiration she puts a statue of Lakshmi the goddess of beauty and prosperity and images of people she loves her husband snowboarding on a mountainside her two nieces and at the forefront the Dalai Lama One is supposed to put a photograph of one s teacher and he has never been my teacher McGrath admits but I ve been in his presence a few times and to me he is the living embodiment of compassion and humanity He is a great teacher She wears comfortable loose clothing always cotton and usually plays soft music feeling a sense of the sky or vast ocean from the turquoise walls I find turquoise very calming it helps me feel more balanced she says And I like the accents of red in the room it s associated with the root chakra at the bottom of the pelvic floor so it helps to feel grounded and stable I put red in the cushions and the curtains as a highlight in the room A large space isn t necessary to practise yoga says McGrath who teaches at United Yoga Montreal Doing yoga at home gives her a chance to practise with her three dogs around her Sometimes it brings a sense of playfulness and other times they get so relaxed from the yoga that I m doing that they re often lying down around me I really love that Yoga teacher Bram Levinson has wide open spaces in his Plateau loft lots of green plants and evocative yoga art and statuary set against sage green walls but wherever he chooses to place his yoga mat the ritual remains the same I make sure that I sweep the floor so that it s really clean and I wash my hands he says Then he chooses a piece of furniture like a cabinet which he covers with a soft cloth and prepares as the centrepiece for his practice He places candles and a statue of Ganesh the remover of obstacles prayed to at the beginning of celebrations says Levinson who also has a tattoo of the god on his left calf Most days with his sweet old Jack

  • Why do Pranayama?
    moving through all the tissues in our body thus promoting an increase in nutrition to the cells more efficient waste removal and better immune defense Scientists estimate that we have more than two gallons of fluid in our body that is not contained within our cells but around our blood vessels organs and cells When the breath moves in and out it produces alternating saturating and wringing effects on our tissues and this interstitial fluid Similar to cleaning a dirty sponge in a sink this action has a significant cleansing effect The alternating squeezing and soaking process helps the lymph system in particular Our lymph system is tasked with fighting infections and overall detoxification This function requires fluid transport but the lymph system itself does not contain a primary pump like the heart so any activity that promotes fluid movement becomes crucial Complete yogic breathing is one of the best facilitators of this necessary transport The last physical benefit of pranayama practice is that full yogic breathing tends to empty the lungs completely This has two important consequences First this means that the bottom third of the lungs gets a thorough airing when we do pranayama exercises Like the bottom of any container gravity will tend to accumulate material there When we use our lungs completely on a regular basis we have a better chance of keeping the bottom third of our lungs cleaner Second regular practice of a full breath technique will keep the tissues of the lower lungs more nourished flexible and free of toxins Just like the heart can starve for blood when the arteries harden and narrow the lower lung tissue can starve for nutrients and oxygen when it is insufficiently used and seldom moved Physiological Effects Most of us have heard of the fight or flight response the automatic reaction that happens in difficult or threatening situations This response comes from our unconscious nervous system the autonomic nervous system which actually consists of two halves the sympathetic system and the parasympathetic system The sympathetic system helps us get pumped up or energized to deal with external demands or threats and is thus the originator of the stress response The parasympathetic system moderates or de energizes the body and is thus the originator of the relaxation response In a healthy system these two halves of our autonomic nervous system should turn off and on regularly and in response to life events Unfortunately our nervous systems do not always function in a healthy way In our modern world it is well established that we overstimulate our sympathetic nervous system and understimulate our parasympathetic nervous system with disastrous impacts on our health Living with an overamped sympathetic nervous system in a habitual stress response contributes to almost every domain of illness from heart disease and hypertension to digestive difficulties diabetes backaches joint pain autoimmune disorders and insomnia A daily pranayama practice stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system as well or better than any other activity you can test this
